The F-Word: Three generations of Women ponder their opinions about the big 4

One of the most well-known cosmetic companies in the world, Avon, has admitted in a global assessment that the epidemic had a significant impact on how women, especially Filipina women, perceive aging. Almost 90% of Filipinas choose cosmetics that promote healthy-looking advantages over those that merely make their skin look youthful, indicating that an incredible 76% of them now view ageing as a good experience and not something to be concerned about.

Being forty can feel a little different, even if each woman’s experience with aging may be different. Ayn Bernos, Inka Magnaye, and Agoo Bengzon, three lifestyle influencers, each offer their unique viewpoint on this significant achievement.

No Such Thing As Peaking Early

Being one of the fastest-rising TikTok stars of today, Ayn Bernos seems to make life more exciting and manageable through her content. Now almost in her thirties, she sees getting older as a privilege instead of a problem to deal with. “When I was younger, I used to worry about the goals that I had for myself—getting married or having kids at this age,” shares Ayn. “But sometimes, life has other plans for you and I realized that is okay. There’s no such as thing as peaking early! I realized some girls tend to worry about peaking at their age, but thing is, you can peak at any age!”

Ayn explains that being in her late 20s now makes her appreciate being older because it brings all the life lessons she wished were taught. “We were always told you had to look young to make yourself presentable. But now, what I try to achieve is just to look healthy and bring out that natural glow that I have, which I see in the women I really look up to—if they can age gracefully, so can I.”

The content creator admits that the pandemic has helped her see a different side to feeling confident about herself. “There’s definitely less pressure now, but it gave me time to really assess who I am as a person. I want to engage more people and talk about their struggles—find common ground and open the discussion on why certain topics are okay to talk about.”

New Chapter, Same Me

t is said that life begins at certain ages, but Inka Magnaye didn’t really put much thought into it when she was younger. Now that she is in her 30s, she makes sure she uses her voice to make a better impression on younger women in her audience. “I want to create content that makes women in my audience feel validated and seen, and that’s something that can help them feel more confident when you go and discuss topics like ageing. I want to engage with them with a mindset of pro-ageing, and usually, talking about the basics can go a long way,” explains the voice actor and top podcaster.

Inka emphasizes that goals can be targets, but they are not set in stone and that anyone can adjust, change, or simply let go of expectations. “I struggled to fit a mold, but I later realized that I can just be a version of myself that I actually like,” she recalls. “In your thirties, you have the means to be the woman you want to be, and it is liberating!”

Inka further explains that finding yourself even when you are older is a different journey but that shouldn’t scare anyone. “During the pandemic, I learned how to engage people in a more dynamic way and I saw that as an opportunity to expand the conversation about dynamic topics that women can relate to. It’s an exciting ongoing chapter, and it’s incredible how you can learn to turn negative thoughts about ageing and being a woman into something positive.”

Just a Number

For beauty enthusiast Agoo Bengzon, ageing gives her the opportunity to experience new things. “It’s a genuinely great feeling because you’re breaking the rules of what women ‘can’ and ‘cannot’ do at this stage,” she explains.

Social media has played a huge part in making sure she gets this message across. Having achieved so much already in her life—a growing family, a steady career, and an unwavering online presence—Agoo says she still wants to experience what else life has to offer, even she’s in her forties. “When the pandemic began, it changed my perspective on how fragile our lives can actually be. So I thought, why do I have to make a big deal out of looking younger when I can just look beautiful in my own terms and age?” she asks.

The beauty expert insists that women shouldn’t be afraid of ageing but rather embrace it. “It’s an inevitable passage of life, and with proper skin care you become one, not only with your looks, but also with your health. It’s definitely an investment and when you put in the work, you get the results. It shouldn’t be a chore, and if you do it right, you can heal from within.”

The Big Shift

Ayn, Inka, and Agoo, as different as they are, all agree that being the best version of yourself can be achieved at any age, even when you get older.

According to the global study by Avon, most women agree that being in their forties has changed what they strive for: from having it all to having enough.

Turns out, 76% of women in their forties do not prioritize being on top of the hierarchy anymore, but rather defining “success” as creating a balance between what they work with and how they want to live. More than half agree that feeling powerful doesn’t necessarily mean having enough money to spend, but having enough self-confidence to just be true to oneself.

With more women prioritizing having healthier-looking skin than looking young, Avon developed and launched the Anew Renewal Activating Serum, formulated with world-exclusive and ground-breaking ProtinolTM technology that offers seven skin benefits in just seven days, allowing women all over the world to embrace ageing and future-proof their skin.

The Anew Renewal Activating Serum can inspire women of all ages to be their most genuine selves, just as Ayn, Inka, and Agoo, thanks to a proprietary and professional composition that ensures faster results.

BingoPlus president Jasper Vicencio and MPE’s Peachy Veneracion signing ceremony

BingoPlus, the country’s first legally operating online bingo site, came up with a fresh strategy to advance its support for Miss Philippines Earth and further its campaign for a greener, safer planet (MPE). The gaming company, whose mission statement is “Live responsibly and work with our community,” connected with the beauty pageant whose special goal is to have its contestants and winners actively promote and help preserve the environment.

In order to get its employees involved in MPE’s upcoming events, such as tree planting, beach clean-ups, and the promotion of tourism destinations, BingoPlus will join MPE in its environmental awareness initiatives and environmental preservation campaigns across the country. BingoPlus had started its own relief initiatives for cities and communities devastated by natural disasters brought on by climate change. In Cebu and Bohol in December 2021, BingoPlus (www.bingoplus.com) contributed to the provision of necessities and the reconstruction of homes damaged by Typhoon Odette.

“Initiatives conducted by BingoPlus under its mother company, Leisure & Resorts World Corporation are aligned with the goal of Miss Philippines Earth. We likewise believe in its 5R’s tenet: Re-think, Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, and Respect,” said AB Leisure Exponent Inc. president Jasper Vicencio.

“BingoPlus is committed to the community it operates in. Bingo has been a major component of Filipino culture and is one of the traditional games to get the family together. Family bonding, socializing and entertainment get us through tough times and makes us upbeat about sharing positivity.

“As a company we aim to teach and create more livelihood programs so families can put more food on the table. We also aim to bridge and narrow the gap for students to gain access to better education, to promote health and wellness programs to benefit those afflicted with poor health; and to safeguard our environment and boost its sustainability,” Vicencio explained.

IMPROVE YOUR SKIN HYALURONIC ACID AND MARULA OIL ARE THIS BREAKTHROUGH COMBO’S

  Bring out healthy, sexy skin in just two days

The hottest active ingredients in contemporary skincare are hyaluronic acid and marula oil. Each component can nurture your skin when applied separately. When you combine them, their advantages work in unison to enhance your skin’s natural beauty and give you an inside sense of sex!

The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, which is primarily found in the skin. Its primary job is to hold water in your skin’s layers; when this happens, the skin retains moisture and suppleness, heals more quickly, and has antibacterial characteristics.

On the other hand, Marula Oil is a newcomer in the beauty oil market and is native to South Africa. It contains antioxidants, amino and fatty acids that have anti-aging, anti-UV, and anti-dryness benefits, which makes it perfect for those living in tropical countries like the Philippines.

While either ingredient can work effectively from one another, you can still enjoy both and get their benefits through the NEW Avon Skin So Soft Supercharged Multivitamin Hand & Body Lotion with SPF 6 that also nourishes your skin with essential vitamins up to 10 layers deep!

MultiVitamin Charged Complex provides essential building blocks like Vitamins A, B3, B5, C, and E—all of which help maintain intense nourishment and protection for your skin.

To ensure these sexifying vitamins and ingredients stay with you, Deep Absorb Technology helps penetrate through the skin’s 10 layers for deep hydration and nourishment to bring out that healthy and sexy skin from within.

Finally, through HydroBoost Technology, every application of Avon Skin So Soft Supercharged Multivitamin Hand & Body Lotion with SPF 6 ensures a healthy dose of Hyaluronic Acid and Marula Oil that instantly locks in and boosts moisture.

“Avon believes that everyone deserves to feel good in their own skin and that can start by having a healthy one,” shares Dione Cotoco, Avon Philippines’ Head of Beauty. “That is why we are bringing together all these high-performing ingredients, essential multivitamins, and exclusive technologies that will help you get the ultimate skin softness and radiance.”

The 250mL bottle of the NEW Avon Skin So Soft Supercharged Multivitamin Hand & Body Lotion with SPF 6 has undergone dermatological testing, offers 48-hour moisturization, and is appropriate for daily use.

The common papaya has always held the key to softer, more radiant skin.

It is best recognized for maintaining the health of the skin, which includes preventing wrinkles and sagging while also encouraging skin that is smoother and brighter.

For decades, Papaya has been a beauty cult favorite and has become one of the most prominent natural ingredients in personal care products.

Dermatologically tested, each application is lightweight, non-greasy, non-sticky and quick absorbing! Nourish and brighten your skin now and avail in 200mL, 400mL, and 750mL variants.

The mild and cleansing Avon Naturals Papaya & Soy Shower Gel will leave your skin soft and smooth with each cleanse with 4x Papaya extract as the Hand and Body Lotion. Meanwhile, the Avon Naturals Papaya & Soy Bar Soap will make you fresh from head to toe with every wash with 2x Papaya extract.

The Avon Naturals Papaya & Soy Collection is free from Parabens, Triclosan, Lanolin, Phthalates, Benzophenone, Mineral Oil and Silicon – all of which are proven to be harmful to the body over time. Cotoco continues, “Everything in this collection is expertly formulated without these harmful chemicals and ingredients. Every time you wash, lather, moisturize, you will get a burst of joy, feel you will get closer to nature, and ultimately achieve brighter and smoother skin.”

Avon and Hulyen release a three-part comic book series to promote “Beauty for All”

Avon has been promoting doing beauty differently for 135 years. During this year’s Pride Month, which yearly honors the LGBTQIA+ community along with their tales and experiences, the top direct-selling beauty company enhances this cause.

Avon Philippines created a three-part comic book series in collaboration with the cartoonist Hulyen (@hulyen) to promote its Beauty for All campaign, which highlights democratic beauty for all people, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression.

“I think everyone deserves to celebrate their own version of beauty especially if it makes them feel good about themselves,” shares Hulyen. “It’s really great that a major beauty brand like Avon is rallying behind this advocacy because it encourages you to be yourself and celebrate what makes you you.”

Each strip depicts issues faced by the LGBTQIA+ community. The comics were distributed to hundreds of thousands of Avon representatives in more than 190 branches across the Philippines, encouraging them to learn more and understand better the LGBTQIA+ community.

In this scene, an individual struggles to remember the various labels in the queer spectrum. A friend reassures her that it’s important to be open about learning new things.

It also provides context that Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression (or SOGIE, for short) goes beyond just the girl, boy, bakla, and tomboy that most Filipinos are more familiar with.

Another comic depicts a queer person who “magically” transforms into her true self when she’s with her friends. This has become a common experience with LGBTQIA+ individuals all over the world. According to Stonewall, only 46 to 47% of queer-identifying individuals feel open and confident to share their sexual orientation or gender identity with their families. Likewise, allies of the community should help create safe spaces where queer individuals can open up and express their true selves.

The last comic visualizes Avon’s commitment when it comes to promoting Beauty for All. It depicts an Avon representative who managed to provide quality beauty and self-care products for her customers, allowing them to truly enjoy their version of beauty no matter what their SOGIE.

“I have learned so much about Pride and how times are changing. It’s something new to me, but we have family and friends who are LGBTQIA+. Understanding them is a great way to show how much we respect them, and through these, I understand them even more,” Avon Representative Jennifer Limyu shares after reading the comics about the LGBTQIA+ community.

Max Closa, Avon Philippines’ Business Development Manager, welcomes Avon’s efforts to rally behind its employees in causes that involve them. “I’m so proud and thankful to be a part of a company who supports the LGBTQIA+ community. The changes might be gradual but it’s already a huge step for us,” Closa shares.

In line with the advocacy, Avon Philippines also recently held a SOGIE Sensitivity Seminar for Associates at their main office. Miss Trans World 2020 Mela Habijan spoke at the event where she discussed SOGIE, the different issues the community is facing, and how one can be a better ally. The trans beauty queen, host, and actress also made a SOGIE explainer video.

Avon Philippines supports members of the Manila drag culture with a variety of goods, like as the Limitless line, to promote their efforts in inclusivity (the first gender-free intimate apparel in the country). The business also made contact with the Home for the Golden Gays, which offers facilities for support and care for elderly LGBTQIA+ individuals.

“Avon continues with its commitment to create a better world for everyone. With Avon, everyone can be brave, brazen, and beautiful all at the same time because Beauty is for All—and that is how it should be in the years to come,” Avon PR and Communications Lead Marion Limlengco says.

Over half of the population has sensitive skin, according to studies

Around 70% of individuals worldwide identify as having sensitive skin, and Dermatologists are seeing an increase in patients with sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is caused by a combination of environmental factors, lifestyle choices, and genetics, but patients typically exhibit compromised skin barriers, dryness, roughness, irritations, and tightness. The prevalence of sensitive skin has motivated research into the problem, resulting in skincare discoveries.

 “As a leader in sensitive skin for over 75 years, we are even more committed to delivering cutting-edge products to advance dermatological care for every skin story,” says Jade Silva-netto Ponoc, Galderma Philippines Business Unit Head.

In the Philippines, Cetaphil is bringing to the country for the first time Skin Awareness Month—the culmination of Cetaphil’s research into the science of gentle skincare, offering a chance to discover the breakthroughs and acquire specifically formulated products to care for all types of sensitive skin. It is part of the brand’s unwaveringly passion for providing complete care for sensitive skin; the Skin Awareness Month offers first-hand access to experts and science-driven recommendations to educate consumers on how best to care for their sensitive skin with a unique routine tailored to them. The annual event started 2021, eventually expanding across the Japan-Asia Pacific region before reaching the Philippines this year.

This year’s Skin Awareness Month is highlighted by the Skin Summit, which brings together dermatologists and skin enthusiasts for three days of themed discussions:

  • May 25a board-certified Dermatologist and member of the Philippine Dermatological Society, Dr. Francesca Sy-Alvarado, discusses sensitive skin and acne, along with Bianca Gonzalez, Maggie Wilson, and Patricia Prieto, who will discuss routines for sensitive skin
  • May 26 – a board-certified Dermatologist and member of the Philippine Dermatological Society, Jarische Lao-Ang, discusses the healthy way to brighten skin, along with Bea Alonzo, Laura Lehmann, Anne Curtis, and AC Bonifacio, who will discuss lifestyle-centric skincare
  • May 27 – a board-certified Dermatopathologist and a member of the Philippine Dermatological Society, Mara Evangelista-Huber, discusses the right foundation for baby’s skin health, along with hands-on parents Solenn Heussaff & Nico Bolzico. Relevant topics on healthy food, play and sleep will also be tackled as Nikki Gil, Mariel Padilla, Patrick and Nikka Garcia share their  experiences as they learn and choose the healthy start their babies deserve.

Access to the Skin Summit is free—interested participants may register via this link https://www.booths.virnew.com/events/cetaphil-2022/register

to reserve slots and avail of exclusive perks on Cetaphil products and other promotions during #SkinAwarenessMonth.

Every skin story deserves the greatest treatment, and Skin Awareness Month 2022 is jam-packed with exclusive offers and other free on-the-ground activities for all skin types. For additional information, visit @CetaphilPH on Instagram and Cetaphil Philippines on Facebook.

Avon’s Pride campaign takes bronze in a regional PR competition

For other firms, observing Pride Month entails simply issuing a message of support and calling it a day. Avon, the country’s leading intimate clothing company, debuted the Limitless Collection, the country’s first gender-neutral underwear, and it’s a victory for everyone.

Avon’s #ComeAsYouAre campaign was well received by the LGBTQIA+ community for demonstrating how brands can go beyond in support of advocacies. Recently held in Singapore, it won Bronze for Best PR Campaign for Fashion & Apparel during the 2022 Marketing-Interactive PR Awards— recognizing outstanding campaigns in the PR and Communications industry across Southeast Asia, South Asia and ANZ regions.

The campaign garnered over 22 million total impressions, earning more than Php16 million in media values, and growing the brand’s Intimate Apparel innovation segment by over 468% versus the prior year—just a peek of what can be achieved when advocacy meets tangible development.

With their 11th branch, Glam and Fab and Dear Self Aesthetics and Wellness Center celebrates their third year anniversary

Ms. Krystal Tecson-Garalde, COO of Glam and Fab and CEO of Dear Self Aesthetics, presented this message during their company’s third year anniversary celebration and thanksgiving last May 10, 2022 at the Pandan Asian Café in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. “We are beyond grateful to welcome the new members of our family and the vision that soars above self-care and self-love with the arrival of our 11th branch this month.” 

Glam and Fab and Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center welcomes their 11th branch along Congressional in Quezon City, thanks to the united efforts and passionate commitment of each family member. Glam and Fab Fairview, Glam and Fab Caloocan, Glam and Fab Cubao, Glam and Fab Pasig, Glam and Fab Tacloban, Dear Self Manila, Dear Self Makati, Dear Self Camarin, Dear Self Cavite, and Dear Self Taguig have all attained this milestone.

The budding aesthetic and wellness-oriented company commits in offering budget-friendly and result-oriented services utilizing top caliber and tech-advanced machines.

“It was also not too long ago when we just eyed for giving quality and healthy aesthetic services which do not compromise prices, and now we are tapping best enhancement surgeons in the country,” Ms. Tecson-Garalde shared.

In addition, the company mainly offers advanced facial treatment, slimming and laser treatments and high-standard drip options that are proven to be effective to diverse clients.

Starting the Business and Pandemic Challenges

Ms. Tescon-Garalde also shared about their company’s objective when they started building their dream business and how they endured the business challenges brought by the pandemic.

“It was not too long ago when all we wanted was to make a living for our immediate family members and now with a grateful heart we are extending help to our friends and over hundred employees whom we also consider family – the very reason we surpassed the hardship of the pandemic is they have loyally stayed with us during our lowest time,” Ms. Tescon-Garalde mentioned.

A known aesthetic clinic inspired husband and wife, Ms. Krystal Tecson-Garalde and Ms. Dennis Garalde, to build the business, risking their family’s savings and regular full-time jobs.

With the right mix of involved people, business strategies and positive minds to achieve a common goal, they were able to reach success in just three years, despite the challenges brought by the pandemic.

Mr. Dennis Garalde, the CEO of Glam and Fab stressed the importance of working hard as one to accomplish the success. He said that family members and employees work hard every day to achieve what they have accomplished.

“Maybe yung three years na time maikli lang for everyone, pero sa kanila it was like 10 years. Kasi kung nag-open ka ng 2019 and the rest of the years were pandemic, medyo mahirap para sa kanila to survive, but they are here right now, celebrating third anniversary with more future plans for the business and for their clients,” Mr. Ric Abasola said, the company’s Marketing and Business Consultant.

The Big Event

The 3rd year anniversary celebration and thanksgiving was attended by the company’s Board of Directors, family members and invited guests including friends from the digital media (Blogger, Vloggers, Media Outlets, Influencers and Content Creators).

Another highlight of the night is the first-ever contract signing event with their newest brand ambassadors who will be the company’s face the next coming months.

Showtime dancers, Ms. Neri ‘BoomBoom Neri’ Lopera and Ms. Grace Abina graced the event. The two signed a contract with Glam and Fab and Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center as their exclusive aesthetic and wellness provider.

“The fact that we are all here, to celebrate Glam and Fab’s 3rd anniversary and to sign our new brand ambassadors and the fact that we already have 10 branches and we are building some more, these alone are worth celebrating,” Mr. Allan Garalde, COO of Glam and Fab mentioned as he welcomed everyone in the event.

The new brand ambassadors shared their memorable experiences with the brand’s services and their ultimate transformation after months of undergoing various treatments.

“Sobrang blessing and binigay samin ng Glam and Fab. Sobrang taba ko before, laging sinasabi ni ate Vice, girl antaba mo! Pero dahil sa Glam and Fab, naachieve ko ulit yung ganitong body and napansin po ito ng Showtime family ko,” BoomBoom Neri bubbly said when she was asked to share her experience.

On the other hand, Ms. Grace Abina shared her frustrations before she started doing treatments with Glam and Fab and her gratitude to the company. “Ang hirap mag maintain ng body dahil ang daming expectations, that’s why I want to thank Glam and Fab for bringing back my confidence.”

Questions from the digital media friends were also accommodated and answered by the new brand ambassadors and the founders while having dinner.

Mr. Christian Tecson, COO of Dear Self Aesthetic, wrapped up the evening with some advice on how to succeed in any effort. “First and foremost, pray hard and trust our Father God Jehovah; second, believe in ourselves that we can survive; third, have a positive outlook on life; fourth, have family support; and finally, believe in and practice the turning tables idea, which involves converting negative things into positive things.” “Hindi natin to makakayanan kung hindi tayo solid,” I tell my family.
